Holocaust denier wins Illinois GOP congressional primary
After running unopposed in Tuesday's Republican primary, it's now official: Arthur Jones, a Holocaust denier, is the GOP nominee for a House race in Illinois' 3rd congressional district.
The Anti-Defamation League says Jones has been involved with anti-Semitic and racist organizations for several decades, and he has a section on his campaign website called "Holocaust?" where a document called "The Holocaust Racket" is posted. Earlier this year, the Illinois Republican Party said it "strongly" opposed Jones' "racist views and his candidacy for any public office," and there is "no place for Nazis like Arthur Jones" in the party or country. The district represents sections of Chicago and nearby suburbs, and Jones will face off against the winner of the Democratic primary: either incumbent Rep. Dan Lipinski or anti-bullying advocate Marie Newman.
